This semester has been a whirlwind, and honestly I can’t believe it’s November. Where has the time gone?!? Even though this year has gone by quickly there has been a statement that has been popped up a few times, “Make sure to use wisdom in the situation”. The other version I have been hearing as well is, “It sounds like you have been using wisdom in the situation”. I know as christians we often hear those two phrases or something closely parallel to them, but what exactly is “wisdom”? Dictionary.com defines wisdom as “the quality or state of being wise; knowledge of what is true or right coupled with just judgment as to action; sagacity, discernment, or insight”.

Worthlessness transformed to Worthiness

How is it that you created this world that spins endlessly? That you chose to breath life into a body of shame and scars?  Of emptiness?
These eyes lost in the sea of life, With memories that haunt and mock.  A heart that feels mangled by hopelessness.
Yet, the crickets burst with song,  Praise adoring your name.  Butterflies soar with majestic beauty,  The skies radiate with clarity,  The sun rains down its warmth, 
It doesn’t seem right,  That wretchedness has life. 
There is a sense of adoration that fills the air,  Love envelops this worthlessness in worthiness. 
Why? 
Did this body deserve it? These hands of disrespect.  Feet of treachery.  Voice of shame.  A body full of regret.  This worthlessness has…. life?
How?
You walked a rugged road,  Died without a fight.  Were rejected and scorned.
